for a baby sitter, okay. if not, don't go. not fair to other patrons that paid good money to enjoy. >> ed says i think parents need to use common sense. if the baby gets fussy, have respect for others and leave. thanks so much to everyone who responded. "fox & friends" starts right now. >> bye. good morning. today is wednesday, march 5. i'm elisabeth hasselbeck. we begin with a fox news alert. blastoff! russia test fires its weapons as president obama waits. is the white house putting the mid term ahead of missile. >> putin looks at this guy and says i'm dealing with an adolescent. >> we're live in kiev with the latest. >> a big development in the case of the teenager suing her parents over money. the judge making his ruling. so was this a case of entitlements or deeper family troubles? it's kid versus parents. round one.
3:01am
>> it is the video you have to see. a dramatic rescue caught on camera. terrifying moments when a van full of the three kids in the ocean. mornings are better with friends. >> it's "fox & friends." ♪ ♪ >> we are looking at the live shot in new orleans. it is ash wednesday. >> it is ash wednesday. a lot of things to be given up today. >> let's see if vladimir putin will use this opportunity to give up the ukraine. in terms of what we're doing, yesterday you saw the secretary of state land there, go to makeshift memorials.
3:02am
understand that everybody knows america is with the ukrainian people while offering subsidies while warning putin to stop gobbling up any more territory. meanwhile, he did not stop at all. some of his statements yesterday show he's in one reality and then there's the reality others are in. >> he's asking us to refocus. i really hope things resolve. i hope they calm down, take it down a notch when it comes to putin's actions because we need to focus on the mid terms. these are the president's remarks yesterday. quote, "something about mid terms. i don't know what it is about us. we get a little sleepy. we get a little distracted. we don't turn out the vote. we don't fund campaigns as passionately. it's got to change here because too much is at stake to let this opportunity slip by." >> those comments were at a fund-raiser last night at former senator chuck robb. he married lyndon baines johnson daughter. >> a wedding we were not
3:03am
invited to. >> and i love to dance. >> first of all, you weren't born yet. and you were busy. >> president obama also said, you know, we're really good at presidential elections these days, if i don't say so myself, he said. but we're not so good at the mid terms. so he wants all hands on deck, not worried about putin but worried about creating some sort of a political fight. so that's why later today while what's going on in the ukraine is going on there, what's he going to do, the president? he's going to be in connecticut beating the drum about the minimum wage. is that the most pressing thing on his plate right now? he's going to be talking about the minimum wage? yesterday in a classroom talking about the world crisis. >> but he was on the phone with angela merkel for about an hour yesterday and he did make a speech after going to a classroom for an event yesterday. what i thought was really odd -- and you saw that picture right there -- is he chose to make the speech and there was some
3:04am
statement about the ukraine. but at the same time he trumped his own secretary of state while the secretary of state is talking dramatically from the ukraine about our next step and the world is watching, all of a sudden we have to switch, all the other networks, to the president of the united states at a grammar school making a similar speech and similar statements. he actually trumped the guy that was in the eye of the storm, his own guy. >> did he send a message of strength? there's nothing wrong with being in a classroom. if you can get into a classroom, anybody, go in there and do some good. if you're going to talk about what's going on in the ukraine, fine. but to bring those two world together perhaps not sending a strong message unless you're stopping on the g on the alphabet map and then walking over to the 8. charles krauthammer said this isn't sending a strong message. in fact, he looked like an add less isn't. isn't. -- adolescent. >> putin said i'm dealing
3:05am
with an adolescent. what putin did, k.g.b. agent and a thug, he pockets all the things obama gives for nothing and struts on the stage knowing he has an adversary on the white house who will do nothing. and he has done nothing. >> he hasn't done much. there's been talk the last couple of days about maybe we'll have sanctions. there's a great item in the "wall street journal" today that talks about how their largest trading partner in russia is europe. don't look for russia to do anything. the economies are so interconnected. just the fact yesterday that when they fired off, they test fired the icbm, and russia said that had nothing to do with crimea, had nothing to do with ukraine. and we're supposed to believe that? >> he also said one of the reasons he moved in is the protests that ousted the constitutional president was reminiscent of the neotphad stkeu -- neotphad
3:06am
neotphad -- neonazi movement? we'll see what happens because there was a sense that we're trying to give him a diplomatic off ramp, but there is no sense that vladimir putin wapbs that off ramp. >> there is a long term vision from putin and seems to be a short term vision through the administration when it comes to mid terms. our vision is going to shift over to other headlines. good morning, heather nauert. >> good morning. remember when putin said there are no troops. fox news alert, day three, the oscar pistorius trial. here's a look inside the courtroom in south africa. today the defense is challenging a couple's testimony that they heard screams and gunshots coming from pistorius's home the night he shot his
3:07am
girlfriend. pistorius's next door neighbor broke down on the stand yesterday recalling the screams that she heard. >> the shots [crying] >> at one point pistorius -- you can see him as he puts his hands over his ears appearing to block out his testimony. he has pleaded not guilty. we'll keep watching this case. at this hour officials are preparing for a more extensive investigation into that massive gas explosion that blew apart a condominium complex leaving one woman dead and seven others hurt. this happened in ewing, new jersey, after contractors responded to a power problem, hit a gas line. neighbors say the force from the blast felt like a bomb. >> it kind of blew me back like 10, 15 feet. it was just chaos outside. people were crying, nobody knew what was going on. >> look at that right there. this house is blown to
3:08am
bits. several of those homes were leveled. most of the residents forced from their homes, wouldn't be able to return until this morning at the very earliest. a hunt is on for a friend of the alleged boston marathon bomber, joseph tsarnaev. she failed to return to her family last year. some are concerned she has become radicalized to commit crimes in the name of islam. she has been posting to social media sites. >> in mardi gras with the parade. this morning the party is starting to die down, and that is because today is ash wednesday. christians marking the beginning of lent. that's the 48-day period when they prepare for easter sunday and jesus'
3:09am
resurrection, a time of reflection and repentance. some give up a favorite food or activity as a sign of sacrifice. those are your headlines. see you in a little bit. thanks. >> we're all parents here. we all have certain requirements of our children. out at the canning place in morris town, new jersey, the father and the mother had a requirement of their 18-year-old daughter. you're going to have a curfew and you're going to have some chores. 18-year-old rachel canning didn't like that. she then moved out last october, and now she has sued her parents for, among other thing, catholic school tuition and a future college fund. and there she is yesterday in court where the judge said sorry, rachel, i'm kind of on your parents' side on this. >> are we going to condone or open the gates to a 12-year-old to sue for an x
3:10am
box? 13-year-old sue for an iphone? >> rachel claims one of the main reasons she didn't come home is they wanted her to break up with her boyfriend. the problem is too maybe the story being pushed forward in court doesn't gel with the voice mails put out in court. >> there are a ton of family issues here. ultimately it is sad. you've got a daughter who separated from her family but wants them to pay for college, wants them to pay for her school. mom and dad seem devastated, but they had issues. >> every family has issues. >> not mine. thank you. >> but the e-mails that came out unraveled how deep this kind of got. there was an e-mail rachel wrote -- actually a voice mail to her mom that said -- we cannot use the actual language here. i blank hate you and i have written you off. don't talk to me, don't do anything. i'm blocking you off from
3:11am
just about everything. have a nice life. bye mom. she wants to be dependent on them and emansip ated. ultimately it is really sad. the judge said you're not going to get away with getting out of the house, wanting your parents' money and setting precedent for other kid down the road suing their parents for bikes. >> there was an e-mail that shows she was apologetic. it was the first voice mail saying i'm sorry about all of this and hopefully we can work it out. >> it spiraled to the point where she wound up suing her parents. the judge said the parents don't have to pay high school and will decide later if they have to pay college. what do you think about this? is it fine? is it a sign of some deeper family problem? or is this just a sign of the times? e-mail us friends at fox

>> today on ash wednesday christians around the world mark with a cross as a symbol of repent for their sins. >> joining us for this first day of lent, jonathan morris. thank you very much. we kick off ash wednesday with ashes. it began a long time ago with the first public display of ashes. but what do they actually mean? >> it is a reminder of our mortality. at the end of the segment i asked steve to put ashes on me. i brought ashes here. what the layperson says is remember that you're dust and to dust you shall return. it's a very simple thing. it's also a sign that we're all sinful. we're all imperfect, and we need to repent. it's ao season of conversion. >> it's a season that starts with this symbol. but it's a season where we've got 40 days to do something with our soul? >> that's right. i put a little plan
3:17am
together. we're going to put it on the screen now. it's not just giving up something. what i would suggest is you give up something and you add something. so it's not just -- i've got to give up candy. how about giving up and adding something in the three areas of what we are: mind, body and soul. in mind, what am i going to give up? maybe i'll stop watching so much trashy television. i'm going to add something positive, do something spiritual reading. how about in the body? i'm going to give up maybe sweets or i'm going to give up alcohol, this or that. and i'm going to add something, do exercise. then in the soul, this is an important one. how about giving up a bad habit? give up a bad habit of some sort and form a virtue. my lent challenge for 2014, don't just give up something. that's a great thing. but how about give up and add something in the three areas of what we are:
3:18am
mind, body and soul. make sense? can i ask steve to give me ashes? >> sure. as we get ready to do this, what is the pope's theme for 2014? >> he said something very simple. he said remember it is about love. he said jesus himself became poor so that we might become rich. he even said -- and it is a quote -- for you know the grace of our lord jesus christ that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor. he said it wasn't just poverty for the sake of poverty. that's not a good thing. but to give up something in order that we might become rich. this has probably never been done before on television. >> it's okay for steve to give you ashes? >> you can have lay people do it in churches. i will leave it on my head during the day. this is nice and wet. >> remember that we are dust and that we shall return to dust? >> remember, jonathan, you are dust, and to dust you

got some quick headlines for you on this wednesday morning. happening today, opening arguments in the biggest terrorism trial since september 11. osama bin laden's son-in-law is charged with conspiring to kill americans on september 11, 2001. prosecutors say the al qaeda spokesman played a pivotal role in the attack. a few hours from right now former i.r.s. official lois lerner expected to face lawmakers on capitol hill over her role in the agency's targeting of tea party groups. the question is will she testify? lawmakers say it is possible she could ask for a delay or plead the fifth like she did during a similar hearing last year. >> you know what's crazy? she says she is worried about her own security
3:24am
during this. her lawyer came forward and said she's worried about some threats she is getting on this? or does that add to her getting a better deal down the line as she moves towards immunity and somehow, and i'm glad for that, she feels compelled to testify. >> certainly no one would want anyone to be in danger. if it is in fact to create another delay, people would be even more infuriated upon hearing that, i would guess. >> the back story here is going to be unbelievable because we heard for awhile she was going to testify, then she wasn't going to testify. then she said i never said i was going to testify. then an e-mail produced said she absolutely committed to testify and changed her mind. >> issa's committee had to release the e-mail chain that shows the testimony rather than just an e-mail chat between lois lerner's attorney and counsel for the committee. people were going what exactly is happening. brian, you're right. after darrell issa said she is going to be testifying before the committee, who got to him? was it somebody who said
3:25am
wait a minute, she's going to testify? we can't have her do that right now. you've got to delay or something like that. maybe if she does testify in open court -- not court, committee hearing -- maybe we will get answers. >> pleading the fifth. what's to hide? if you have nothing to hide and plead the fifth, that brings up a question. struggling, mid term democrats. >> the latest, including what new jersey governor chris christie is telling americans to do to deal with ongoing problems with obamacare. the governor is back. >> the timing of this looks all too political there. 15 million to 17 million people on the individual market, more than 6 million of them have experienced cancellations forcing them to enroll in obamacare. to prevent more cancellations, president obama is adding a new delay to the individual mandate. insurance companies will be allowed to renew people under their old policy. keep in mind these plans do

union which we couldn't and wouldn't do. we hired an open shop contractor to construct a small model unit in the building, and all the union subcontractors we had hired walked off the job. it resulted in an impasse, and we thought that we had no choice but to continue on with open shop contractors. at that point -- >> which seems completely fine and fair. but then theuys didn't like that and they started coming after you. and it apparently is absolutely condoned by pennsylvania law? >> yes. hundreds of contractors protested the site, or protesters came to the site. a daily day in the life of the site included, you know, welded nail balls, disabling vehicles, you know, you know, guys, you know, a couple incidents where guys were kraeused --

chased with crowbars. some were actually hit. there was an incident where a contractor was trying to get into the site and he was pinned between the fence and a wall and repeatedly crushed until he fell to the ground. a lot of these incidents are on our website. they are quite violent. >> in addition, sarina, they have been harassing your children. they are trying to make a point, use union labor. you refused to do that. what did you do? you took all the information. as it turns out, the cops' hands are tied and the courts can't do anything because according to pennsylvania crime code, laws on harassment and stalking and threats to use weapons of mass destruction have this clause. this section shall not apply to lawful conduct by a party to a labor dispute. what they consider lawful conduct is if it's involving a labor group,
3:48am
the state law protects them from harassment claims. where'd that come from? >> we're not really sure. i don't even believe the legislators are sure. i testified before the house judiciary committee, and they were perplexed as well. i think the spirit of the law, you know, hopefully there was good intentions, but you know, clearly it's being used in an improper way. >> absolutely. >> it can't continue. we need to be able to prosecute people for doing these bad things. and it sets the wrong tone. >> absolutely. it is a culture of violence. if people are harassing, they should be held accountable. apparently this is a law that dates back to the 1930's. luckily for you, although it could be too late for you, a republican state senator there by the name

i apologize, former notre dame coach, now commentator. if you have a story of interviewing a famous coach on ash wednesday, share it with us. >> just got one. two tweets came in. we are going to begin with a fox news alert. the u.s. has failed to bring together russia to a meeting. john kerry said regrettably, one member of russia had not appeared for the meeting. this is as russia launches a test missile. amy kellogg is live with the latest developments. what can you tell us? >> reporter: you're getting that before i am. but it's not surprising given the level of tension that exists now. russian president putin said this morning in a possible sign of deescalation that he wants to return to economic cooperation with all traditional partners despite political tensions. and then furthermore, we heard from the head of ukraine security services this morning
4:03am
that things had not necessarily escalated overnight in crimea, which is the area russian troops effectively control. but he did say while he appreciates all the support of the west, he would like at this point to see a little bit more. no one here is asking for western or american troops on the ground. but what they would like is something a little stronger, maybe, for example, some warships in the black sea or i've heard people talk about humanitarian deliveries to ukraine, but in western military planes. nothing like military intervention. just something slightly more muscular because we keep seeing these scenes in crimea like yesterday, when russian troops surround yet another ukrainian base, cutting off supplies to the ukrainian soldiers who are holed up inside. then the diplomatic maneuverings in paris seem to be hitting a few walls already. john kerry is there.
4:04am
russian foreign minister is supposed to be there. ukraine's new foreign minister there. this is supposed to be a talk about syria. but now ukraine is agenda number one. also what is hoped today is to get the russian foreign minister together with the new acting ukrainian foreign minister. that would be very important. and one last note. in an extraordinary comment, the foreign minister said that russia doesn't have the ability to pull its forces back from crimea because its forces are local defense forces and that is something that sort of is beyond the credence of people at this point. >> amy kellogg, thank you for those updates. we will look to you to keep us updated. >> putin was saying they had uniforms from the soviet days. 16,000 people marching in order, all speaking russian, into another country. wasn't me. >> all hit the thrift shop and
4:05am
just hit the streets. >> you know what he's talking about. >> it's all part -- look, it's all part of a plan. some had suggested as soon as the sochi olympics are over, putin is going to try something. how many people do you hearsay that? now fast forward to yesterday they fired an icbm and some question whether or not they gave united states proper notice that we're going to light one of these candles. but was there intel ahead of this? did it get to the right people? was it simply dismissed? paul ryan, he just doesn't get it, what they're doing with foreign policy in this administration and he said this and he's right. >> there are moments when i just look down and shake my head and say, i can't believe we lost these guys. this is one of these moments. mitt was right. i think the president was incredibly naive on his russia policy. i think is what happens when a super power projects weakness in its foreign and defense policy,
4:06am
aggression fills that vacuum. >> one thing secretary gates has got the number one book in the country and said we have very few options at this point. we have to meet with the other members, like poland and holiday i can't and the other nations in the area and make sure they have a defense plan. sure enough, this morning poland requested that nato have an emergency meeting in case they get invaded next. what are we going to do then? go i don't know? take a portion of poland and we'll move on? >> as we heard many say, putin seems to be hungry for more. we're waiting and reacting to him. he's ordered a review of the intelligence analysis that was produced earlier on, saying that two different stories came out. people left a review saying part of the intelligence said one thing, part of it said another. he wants to make sure that the reason we missed this was not something significant. >> we missed the georgia thing, too. >> sure, we do. and did they get punished? no. they got the sochi olympics. paul ryan is right. he's got to be scratching his

head thinking, we lost to these guys? mitt romney was right. russia as it turns out is our number one geopolitical foe. and all you got to do is look at what is going on right now and the president of the united states doesn't think we're in the cold war, long gone? take a look at the headlines. it's here. >> heather is here. what made it worse, is they were mocked for bringing that up about russia. >> the main stream media helped them. >> sarah palin brought it up as well. >> she was right, too. >> she should be fired up about that. that was a nightmare about "saturday night live." >> got news to bring you. let's get to a fox news alert. today is day three of the oscar pistorius trial underway. here is a live look inside the courtroom in south africa. right now pistorius' friend is recounting gun shots at a restaurant back in 2013. that friend is saying pistorius asked someone else to take the blame for shooting a gun inside that restaurant.

the koch brothers don't care about maintaining the strong safety net of medicare and social security and the koch brothers don't care about guarantee of affordable, quality health insurance for every american. what is going on with these two brothers made billions of dollars last year in an family to buy our democracy is dishonest, deceptive, false and unfair. these two brothers are about as unamerican as anyone i can imagine. >> we got to see about his imagination then. liberal leaders like harry reid eager to attack those like the koch brothers. perhaps that's a distraction. new reports linked big democratic donors like george soros to shady behavior. that controversial fcc study to send spies into our news rooms. why isn't harry reid talking about that? out of time perhaps? byron york is the political correspondent for the new york examiner. why the koch brothers?
4:16am
why are they in the cross hairs right now with him? >> there seems to be a democratic plan to target somebody every few years. go back four years to the 2010 elections. democrats were in trouble back then, too. they talked about the chamber of commerce and said it was the foreign funded chamber of commerce. you google it. go back to october of 2010 and they talked about it all the time. so the new villain are the koch brothers and i think you're going to hear that from now all the way through november. >> how about this, if they're looking for a suggestion, what about examining george soros. gave money to journalism school, university of wisconsin, and $300,000 to the school's madison commons project. they also we want after the west coast, where they received $195,000 in donation from george soros open societies foundation and the journalism in partnership with ethnic media conferences. looks like he's trying gain influence with the next
4:17am
generation of journalists. >> absolutely. you mentioned those two because they were the ones who were involved in the study from the federal communications commission. i think you have to look kind of at the bigger picture with the study because a lot of liberal reformers have been very unhappy for years at the continued success of rush limbaugh. they want to limit that success if they can. they used to cling to the hope that they could restore the old fairness doctrine. clearly unconstitutional. i think they've given up on that. but they've come up with a new idea called media diversity. they want to change the ownership of radio stations around the country if they can do that, new owners won't play limbaugh. they reduce his influence that way. that's what they want to do. >> it's amazing because they can't get successful liberal talk show hosts. so they're going to try to do it some other way, having somebody else buy the stations and have no one listen perhaps. let's look at this, in terms of donor, we were curious. how much influence do the koch brothers have in terms of dollars given? look at the top 15 donors.
4:18am
they have some ties to democrats. if you want to go all the way down and find the koch brothers, you have to go down to number 59. they're creating a villain where maybe none exists. what about senator reid making these statements, inflammatory statements where he's got immunity on the senate floor? why doesn't he go outside and accuse mitt romney of not paying taxes? it would be a different story, wouldn't it? >> you're right to bring up that romney thing. he made pretty much a scandalous accusation against him not paying taxes, again from the congress floor. a list was posted of the important donors. labor unions are by far and away the biggest, most influential of those donors and many of them give 90-plus percent of their contributions to democrats. if you're going to talk about money in politics, you can not just talk about the koch brothers. you've got to talk about the big
4:19am
unions. >> it's almost like vince mcmahon producing these elections on the democratic side. they have to make a good guy and villain. mitt romney was the bad guy. it's not so much the policies, it's how bad he is. now let's create another villain, these horrible people financing a bunch of illogical candidates against the good guys. black hats and white hats. i wonder how long america will buy it. >> the whole idea right now is to tar a republican candidate with the villainy of the koch brothers because americans for prosperity, a group that the koch brothers do fund, does a lot of ads that play in local elections and states around the country. so democratic candidate having villainized the koch brothers can say, my opponent is taking money from the koch brothers. that's the whole game here. >> right. try to push them aside. all right. thanks so much. always appreciate your insight. >> thank you, brian. 19 minutes after the hour. here is what's straight ahead, tucked inside the white house's proposed budget for next year, obamacare bailout.

4:26am
mother and child learned together, it just makes such a difference. and now that jeb and doro are heading my foundation, they sort of delicately pushed me out. >> you've been squeezed out of your own -- >> squeezed out of my own club. jeb said, mom, while the iron is hot, you should get out. >> a couple of years ago i went down to the celebration of reading, which is part of your program in florida, went two years in a row. over the last 25 years, what's been the greatest satisfaction for you personally? >> just the fact that we're in 50 states and we were not in one state when we started. there were no programs before and now we're in 50 states. we've given away, i think, $60 million. >> as you look back, which of the stages has been mom, grandma, what's really been satisfying? >> all of them. mom, i love. we had babies so early that i could play golf with george w.
4:27am
and throw him off the golf course for profanity. i think we're very, very close, george and i because we did a lot of things together as young mothers. we went through some very tough times, too. he was my hero. still is. that hurts when people criticize george w. and don't ever dare do it in front of me, or behind me. >> you have been in this business of politics and public service for many -- your whole life. how do you explain what kind of a business it is? >> i think it brings you closer together because you are hurt by the criticisms and don't criticize george w in front of jeb. >> going to wind up losing a finger? >> i don't know, but i've heard him defend his brother. >> i don't know if you're a reader of the "new york times," but "new york times," maureen do you do had a column and it was brace yourself for hillary and jeb. >> i did see that and i thought,
4:28am
anything to make news. you read about the man who dies and his obituary is about that big and did you read about this man who said, don't send flowers. don't send donations to anything. cancel your "new york times" subscription. so i did. >> the reason i mentioned maureen dodd saying brace yourself for hillary and jeb -- n this country, which is such a great country, that there are more than three families. then i read the bully pulpit, i think by doris goodman and she points out that in 1700, there were only three families. so maybe it's okay. it just seemed to me ridiculous in a country this size that we didn't have other families. we got great governors and other people. i just don't understand it. and maybe jeb's given all he should give, 'cause he worked

their type 2 diabetes... ...with non-insulin victoza. for a while, i took a pill to lower my blood sugar, but it didn't get me to my goal. so i asked my doctor about victoza. he said victoza works differently than pills, and it comes in a pen. and the needle is thin.
4:45am
victoza is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza is not insulin. do not take victoza if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include swelling of face, lips, tongue or throat, fainting or dizziness, very rapid heartbeat, problems breathing or swallowing, severe rash or itching. tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis) which may be fatal. stop taking victoza and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis, such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen
4:46am
or from your abdomen to your back, with or without vomiting. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. taking victoza with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are nausea, diarrhea, and headache. some side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. if your pill isn't giving you the control you need... ask your doctor about non-insulin victoza. it's covered by most health plans. welcome back. his american dream has been put on hold because of obamacare. he wanted to expand his pet lodge company to more locations, but that would increase his employee size to 50, since he can't afford health care coverage for all 50, he could face a $2,000 fine per employee.

but i can't help but think about that quote that the president had last year, you business owners, you didn't build that yourself. the government did. well, we didn't. we did it the old-fashioned way. we emptied our savings, mortgaged our homes, and we hoped it worked without any government help. but every step that we take it seems like we're working against the government. >> do you feel as though the government is trying to crush businesses like yourself? >> i don't know about crush us, but they're certainly not helping us. you see the movement toward jacking up the minimum wage. they've rolled back the bush tax cuts. they're buried a lot of tax surprises in the code to pay for obamacare. it's certainly not helpful. >> i know harry reid takes the senate floor and he says these obamacare suffering stories, they're lies. what do you have to say to him? >> i could agree with harry reid, but then we'd both be wrong. people are losing their insurance after the president said they wouldn't.

the crisis in ukraine. just a couple hours, john kerry supposed to sit down with russia's foreign minister. this as the united states threatens to back out of the g8 summit if putin does not stand down. but russia continues to make military advances, this time launching an somewhere ballistic missile test as you're cranian leaders say they will hold firm in the region. amy kellogg is live in kiev following the very latest developments. there are plenty of them. >> reporter: yes. i do want to say with that test firing of the missile last night, everyone's reaction, including all the russia and ukraine experts i know, was kind of oh, no, what is this? it turns out it was a preplanned test and russia had notified the united states. so i think right now that is considered to be the least of it. nevertheless, you are absolutely right, the developments are fast and furious in this region. the head of security services
5:03am
here in ukraine today said he doesn't see an escalation in the last 24 hours in crimea, which is the area that russia does have operational control over. however, the police, border guards, the equivalent of the old kgb in ukraine are shoring up the border with russia because they're concerned about further provocation. people coming across the border from russia to try to stir up unrest. not necessarily troops and boots on the ground, but agents who will try to stir up pro-russia demonstrations in parts of eastern ukraine. in the meantime, the wheels of diplomacy supposedly are turn not guilty paris. we don't know where it stands. we know secretary of state kerry and russian foreign minister and the ukrainian foreign minister will hopefully get together to discuss the situation later this afternoon. the european union and russia talk about upping aid to ukraine at this sensitive time, steve. >> all right.
5:04am
amy kellogg live in kiev where it is noisy on this wednesday. thank you very much. >> it's kind of amazing yesterday as putin has a press conference, the president has a press conference and the secretary of state has one. putin explained we do not have troops in the crimea region, okay. and we did take action and we are concerned that a constitutional elected leader was legally ousted from his position. and he also said that neonazis were behind some of the unrest against jews. >> right. so we have putin focused on the region there. but president obama seems to be focused on the mid terms. this is part of the his remarks yesterday campaigning. some would deem him to be the campaigner in chief. critics would say this is his quote. something about mid terms, i don't know what it is about us, we get a little sleepy and distracted. we don't turn out to vote. we don't fund campaigns as passionately. that has to change and it's got to change right here because too much is at stake for us to let
5:05am
this opportunity slip by. >> so the president of the united states was at this fund-raiser last night at former senator chuck rob's house and keep in mind, he's a former community organizer. he's not really a diplomat. what's he more concerned with? control of the u.s. senate or what's going on over in russia and ukraine? it's interesting because he said, we may be able to deescalate over the next several days and weeks, but it's a serious situation and we're spending a lot of time. he wants to deescalate the deal in the ukraine so that he can instead focus on his top priority, which is getting his base to turn out in november. of course, what's he doing today to fire up his base? he's got an event in connecticut about the minimum wage. when you look at all the things going on right now in this crazy world of ours and he's focusing on the minimum wage, that says a lot about his priorities. >> perhaps it would also say he's minimizing what is going on because he has minimizeed policy over the past five years when it
5:06am
comes to our geopolitical threat right now. >> good point. >> it seems in many ways america is getting tired of the relations. heather nauert what, else is happening in the news? >> we got headlines. a fox news alert, brand-new video just in, this coming out of detroit and take a look at this. firefighters battling a massive fire at a three-story apartment building here. you can see the thick black smoke and also all those flames as they pour through that roof. we are hearing of residents of this building were forced to jump to safety. some of them were still in their pajamas. three people rushed to the hospital this morning. officials believe that building is now empty. no word yet on what started that fire. we'll update you as more information becomes available coming out of detroit a short while ago. the hunt is on for a friend of the alleged boston marathon bomber, dzhokhar tsarnaev. 23-year-old woman failed to return to massachusetts from a trip to chechnya with her family

5:09am
these two brothers are about as unamerican as anyone that i can imagine. >> harry reid has a history of saying some crazy things on the senate floor. for instance, unamerican. i mean, that's over the line. but then you remember he said those crazy things about i know somebody who says mitt romney didn't pay taxes in ten years. then suggested that mitt romney was a felon. why does he say it on the senate floor? because there he has got immunity. if he was a real man and he really felt like that, say it off the floor where you don't have immunity. does he do that? no. >> by the way, i was talking to byron york earlier and he said this whole thing about picking a villain is just the latest choice because since the day one of this administration, they always find somebody to make the bad guy. listen. >> the whole idea right now is to tar a republican candidate with the villainy of the koch brothers because americans for prosperity, a group the koch brothers do fund, does a lot of ads that play in local elections
5:10am
and states around the country. so a democratic candidate, having villainized the koch brothers can say, my opponent is taking money from the koch brothers. that's the whole game here. >> yeah. when you look at donors, i think the koch brothers are down at number 59 in the order of influence. >> they're 59. >> george soros is ahead of them and you look at the all-time donors through the period of '89 through this current year, and you can see, democrats, the first two. at & t, a corporation, gives to both. koch brothers, 59, way downstream. >> right. harry reid choose to go specifically attack the koch brothers at number 59. no mention of george soros who tops the list and the top 15 are largely democratic. >> and i guess one of the lines he said was that republicans are hooked on koch. get it? you notice the top 15 all have a democratic tie. that's an interesting stat. i don't believe the rnc will run with that, but they would have that option.

only problem, recruiting them from a group with ties to terror. that group called the islamic society of north america, appears on this list of friends of the muslim brotherhood. let's not forget what the brotherhood says it's trying to accomplish. quote, work in america is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the western civilization from within. could our federal government and our commander in chief be putting america's bravest in danger? ryan morro is a national security analyst and joins us live today. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> so this outfit that has been hired to provide two chaplains has a well-documented connection to extremist militants. >> that's exactly right. they are an unindicted co-conspirator and the country's largest terrorism financing trial in american history. we know from muslim brotherhood documents published that the muslim
5:16am
muslim brotherhood says this is one of their fronts and the justice department says. you have the muslim brotherhood linked organization helping the military to choose some of its muslim chaplains. >> who needs to infiltrate the military now? you have the military hire you! >> right. and it's much bigger than just this group, the islamic society of north america because the individual that originally set up the muslim chaplain program for the prisons and the military is a man who is now in prison on terrorism-related charges and he says that he was the secret member of the american branch of the muslim brotherhood from the beginning. >> in addition to the fact that we have hired two chaplains from this particular organization, we're also giving the organization money in an ad to promote the fact that we're doing business with them. >> right. so over at the clarion project, we were going through this organization's magazines and saw that there were advertisements from the u.s. air force. so we contacted the air force and we said, are you using taxpayer money to advertise in a
5:17am
muslim brotherhood-linked magazine and they said yes, we gave $5,000 for two advertise ams because we wanted their personnel to know that we want them to help us in recruiting chaplains. >> you don't have a problem with the military hiring muslim chaplains. you have a problem where they hire them from. >> absolutely. this organization is very influential. they say that they're essentially the gatekeepers of the muslim american community. if you look at a poll that came out in 2011, the percentage of muslim americans who say this epresents their interests registers in the single digits. by all means, have muslim chaplains, just be careful who you're working with. there is plenty of alternatives. >> what are you suggesting they coo with the two they hired from the group? >> you're certainly going to have to watch them very closely because if you look at the leadership of the islamic society of north america, they believe in this doctrine that they call gradualism toward implementing sharia in america and they have leaders have defend hamas and made other

mini van. you can see one man pulling the last of the three kids out of the trunk. it's believed the mom intentionally drove into the ocean. elisabeth? well, this morning we're bringing you a brand-new series called "my america." they're stories about all of us, things we all care about, sometimes they're amusing. other times they're heartfelt. but they're always going to be unexpected, thought provoking and uniquely american. we want to shed some light on who we are as a nation and who we are longing to be. we're going to have a lot of fun along the way. it's a journey that will capture as much of your america as it does my america. our first story looks at a young guy who is determined to become the next big star of his sport. 20 years old, darryl wallace, junior, turned heads last year when he did something that hadn't been done in nascar in
5:24am
almost 50 years. now everyone is waiting to see if he can take that talent to the next level. >> darryl wallace, junior, sees the white flag one more time! >> coming down the last four or five races into the season and we were starting to wonder, are we going to get us a win? before that, we just come up short. rookie mistakes on my end. the biggest thing for me and my team is we finally got a win. >> darryl wallace, junior is going to get his first win of the series! >> this emotional win brought him to the spotlight not just because it was his first big victory on nascar's circuit, it was the first time an african-american won a nascar race since we understandle scott broke stock racing's color barrier nearly 50 years ago. >> how does it feel to be in victory lane? >> oh, my god! i don't know, man. i'm speechless right now. god, i couldn't even hold it
5:25am
together. >> that's shark track racing. beating and banging and being able to go to pit stops and get back out first. it's a huge effort. >> coach and now race car owner joe gibbs saw promise in darryl when he signed him to a development driver deal when he was just 16 years old. >> the great thing about sports, you can't con your way. you can't talk your way. you can't buy your way. you got to race your way. i think he's done that. >> great expectations ride on the shoulders of darryl, who started racing by chance when a guy who rebuilt his father's harley invited them to his go-cart facility when he was nine. >> yeah, that's where you have the most fun, being banged a little bit and go for the win. >> once darryl got behind the wheel, there was no stopping him, setting records on different race tracks on the weekend racing circuit. but not everyone was a fan. >> when you do win, people didn't like it. throw out some slurs or hand gestures and give me the number
5:26am
one sign and i'll give them a thumbs up back and go out there and win again. the fans didn't like that i was beating their home track favorites. i didn't care. i wanted to win. >> with those days behind him, everyone wants him to win now, including nascar, who is trying to break old stereotypes and build a bigger fan base. the organization's drive for diversity program is in its tenths year and darryl is one of their most promising graduates. >> it's tough, a kid out of college trying to come through. i see it trying to beat the other guys. you beat kyle bush. when he runs with us, that's the number one guy to beat. if you're beating him, you're winning the race. >> with all this evidence, one question remains. just how far with darryl wallace, junior, go? >> that's going to be the question. it's always with young athletes, and particularly in this sport, you've got to race your way to the top. >> you got to come into the sport with a heavy head on your
5:27am
shoulders and be ready to fight. they're not scared to rub up against you and you can't be scared back. show them you're there, too. i'm very excited. got to make the most of it. i got to do better than one win. i really think we got a good shot. >> it's also important to note that without darryl's parenting, he might never have gotten where he is today. his dad, who owns an industrial cleaning business, estimates he investedded more than a million dollars to support his son's career before joe gibbs signed him at 16. it's quite a commitment for the parents. i said they start young. the average age for the top drivers in the nascar's top circuit, six years old when they start. >> is that right? >> on average. >> driving what? >> go-carts on back trails and the challenge is really getting to as many of those small races as possible. it's a huge commitment for parents. great drivers. >> the thing is, when you come up, if you try to go cheap, you use old tires, you use old
5:28am
equipment and therefore, you can't get ahead. so even if you're a tremendous driver, you got to overcome the finances and a lot of times if you pick one kid, say my oldest wants to race, what about the other kids? a lot of times there isn't enough money to do things with them. >> making tracks with the tires and really making history here when it comes to darryl. he's going to be headed back to martinsville, his first visit since last year's historic win when the truck series resumes on saturday, march 29. you can catch it all starting at 1:00 p.m. eastern time on fox sports 1. next time, my america is going to explore mutten busten. the great american pastime that started as a half time attraction where kids ride sheep and hold on for dear life. we're going to look at whether the average parent would even let their kid participate. don't miss "my america," a new series here on "fox & friends." >> back in the '70s, i might have done that in kansas, but
5:29am
that was before youtube. >> how did you do? i would pay to see that. >> i went flying like a missile at one point. >> i'm going to try. have you mutten busted? >> no, i've never mounted a sheep. >> we're thankful. >> straight ahead, remember the congressman who said this about the republican health care plan? >> if you get sick, america, the republican health care plan is this: die quickly. >> this morning police want a word with alan grayson. >> and look at the size of my nose. i got to hang out with former first lady barbara bush in houston. but it didn't last long. she kicked me out for somebody else. find out who straight ahead on "fox & friends." ♪ ♪

a big loss for a new jersey teen suing her own parents because they won't pay her tuition. a judge denied rachel canning's request that her folks pay her high school tuition and living costs. she says her parents threw her out when she turned 18. mom and dad say she refused to follow the rules or do the chores. this case far from over. here to break down the details is a guy that's been down this road before. he's tv's judge alex. first off, are you surprised the judge ruled in favor of the parents? >> no, i'm not surprised. nothing screams entitlement generation like an 18-year-old who says i don't want to live by
5:46am
the rules. i want to drink. i want to stay out. and by the way, i want you to pay my college. i'm going to move out. take care of it, will you? so i don't think that she's going to prevail at the hearing. this was just the temporary support hearing and the judge said no, i'm not giving you temporary support. the actual hearing is coming up in maybe a month or so. but you should know that the law varies across the country. some states say a child is emancipated when they hit 18, presumably. some 21, some when they enter the military or get married. but new jersey basically doesn't have a set period. it says a child is emancipated when they move beyond the sphere of influence, obtaining their own independence. i would argue a child who says i'm not following your rules and moves out does just that. >> a parent who says you have rules, that's the price of admission for a family. the question is whether the judge in this case will say, okay, parents, you have to pay
5:47am
her college tuition. is there an implicit agreement between a kid and their parents if i do a good job at school, you're going to -- i'm sure they're going to try to pull that kind of contract thing going forward, wouldn't they? >> yeah, except it's not a contract. it's a gift. a parent can say, i'm going to pay your tuition and then say, you know what? you're misbehaving. parenting is a parent's right. courts have no business there. even parents who spank their children at some point can't spank them. the only discipline you can have is we're not going to give you this. and part of that can be private school, move to you public school. take away your college tuition, and judges were elected to be judges. they were not elected to be god. they were not elected to be parents and they should stay out of those decisions. likewise, the parent of the child's friend who she's living with, who has decided to fund this litigation against the parents, needs to mind his own business, raise his own child and let these parents raise
5:48am
theirs. >> this is much to do about setting precedent in terms of the rules and kids coming forward as the judge said, looking to sue for the next x box. >> you're absolutely right. where does it end if a child can say, hey, even though i'm 18, i'm going to move out of the house, or i'm going to stay under your roof and i'm not going to follow your rules and i'm not going to do what you want me to do. but by the way, pay my college. then the next step will be you need to buy me a car. you're obligated to do that because i need to get to work. you'll have to pay for my x box and other things. it's a slippery slope as the judge pointed out in the hearing. >> it is. judge alex joining us from atlanta with his analysis on the case. thank you very much. >> always a pleasure. >> a dozen minutes before the top of the hour. it's not easy being a pastor's daughter. just ask these folks. >> just because i'm the youngest of four, everyone thinks they can tell me how to live my life. >> put your hand up on the table. >> you are breaking my rules.

5:55am
no one is immune to it. we went through our own struggles and trials and because of our faith in the lord issues that's what brought us through that whole divorce process and brought restoration. >> everybody thinks they have it figured out when they think of a preacher's family. you guys are throwing a stick into the wheel. we came off of talking about the new jersey teen suing her parents. i know there was some situations here where you had him follow regulations and rules at home. what would you say to the family here who is probably struggling to put things back together? >> keep on keeping on. >> i mean, my heart breaks for the family. i saw that and i heard about it and i saw it. i have four daughters. colby is our youngest. i couldn't even imagine my girls when they're upset with me, it's upsetting enough. but to actually sue me or -- i don't understand that. but it's the world we live in today it seems like. >> is it ever too late for a child to come home? >> i don't think so.
5:56am
